We always enjoy taking a step back in Valley Home history when winter doldrums seem to arrive in our community. Let's take a giant step back into 1944, serving during World War II in the month of December to be specific, and take glimpse of what some of our young male residents were doing during that time period. We found some of our Valley Home young men involved in the War action, both during the western and European action. Sgt. Paul Wieber, son of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Wieber and a graduate of Oakdale High School had already served ...

The sight of all the flowering trees is one of the many things that make living in Valley Home such a great pleasure.

Oak Valley Art Society members enjoyed an interesting program at their monthly meeting on Saturday which featured an interesting program by Escalon artist, Dorothy Girling and her husband Bob. Dorothy displayed some of her work and gave suggestions on the use and care of various art mediums. Bob spoke on the best way to ready paintings for hanging, using plastic tubing to cover frame wire to keep from damaging the painting. Dorothy also leads a sketching class one afternoon a week at the Escalon library which has proven very beneficial to those interested in improving their drawing skills.
